    I'm not really sure that Riverman knew that MM is actually on meds. River tends to stay away from the drama. Saying someone is on meds or should be on meds is rather standard and generic smack talk.

    And yes, many of you including myself should be on meds.

    This is how I think as well, but to each his own. Back on topic

    None of this would be worth it had the Blazers made a trade like 2 hours ago.

    It's pretty widely known that MM is dealing with an illness. He referred to "his" meds. To me, that signifies and understanding that MM is on meds.

    Not a complaint. Just my opinion. Bringing up someones meds he needs to live is bullshit, IMO.

    If Robinson falls int the 2nd round, I wouldn't be surprised if we made a play for him. Great shooter, shitty defender. Perfect Blazer

    I can not recall Riverman ever being a problem or having a problem in this forum so I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. I could be wrong and if I am I'll be the first to admit it but I honestly don't believe River meant it as you and MM are taking it.

    Shocking that I'll admit it if I'm wrong? Not at all, I do it all the time. It's not hard, you should try it sometime.

    Mods should have the thickest skin on the forum especially if they are going antagonize the posters. #SavePapaG

    So anyway, we offered him the most we could while we have exclusive rights to him, paying him max money through his Age 32 season.

    If he says no, next year when he's a UFA here's the landscape:
    -DAL and SAS have room for two max players (at least) and probably no HoF PF anymore (Dirk may re-sign for much less)
    -there aren't a lot of PFs available
    So LMA will have multiple suitors for his services, and the ability to team up with at least one other superfriend in both situations.
    We can offer him more money and 1 more year, taking him up through his age 34 season. The % raises come out to be 650k more per year or so, or 3M more over the course of the contract.

    If for whatever reason he leaves, we have 15M or so in cap space, but very little in the way of decent-to-great PFs to spend it on.

    Yes, you're right, we should ignore when someone breaks the rules for 6+ years. That person has been warned and suspended so many times I have literally lost count. He was permanently banned before, and was let back on a probationary status. So yes, please, tell me about thick skin.
